Mums Fashion | Brown is the New Black

Every season there is a new colour to channel and incorporate into your wardrobe should you choose. This season there seem to be two stand-out colours – lilac and brown. I think brown is a great colour option which is often overlooked. It may seem a bit burgh and mud-like but it isn’t as harsh as black and is often more flattering on most skin tones. Here are a few pieces showing brown could be the new black (well, for this season anyway!).
